Hotels in Orne

    Orne Details

    This department, as the provinces or states of France are known, is located in northwestern France. The region gets its name from the Orne River. Of the political divisions of Normandie, this is the only one with no access to the ocean. While many people around the world may not have heard of Orne specifically, you can sample some world-famous Camembert cheese, a delicacy that gets its name from the village where the cheese was made in earlier times. Experience the scenery of the Orne River and the Route des Haras et des Chateaux for its fortresses and other attractions. See Carrouges, a castle built nearly 600 years ago or ask about the region's connection to the story of Lancelot, a knight of the Round Table. Numerous shops are also available for those wishing a bit more "urban" experience, though the most attractive shops are located in smaller communities.
